In Psalm 119, David mentions over and over his love for God’s Word and what it means to him

It is his delight and life: “If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.“ (Psalm 119:92-93)

It is sweet to him: “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103)

It is a light for him: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (Psalm 119:105)

It is valuable to him: “Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold, and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.” (Psalm 119:127-128)

It gives him direction: “Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.” (Psalm 119:133)

It is his hope: “You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.” (Psalm 119:114) I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. (Psalm 119:147-148)

What is God’s Word to you? Do you love it? Is it valuable and sweet to you? Do you look to it for direction and hope?

I pray that his Word will be your delight, that you will find the treasure hidden in it and let it come alive in your life.

Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly. (Colossians 3:16)

    In a season of life where it is easy for me to make Bible study the last priority, I really needed to hear this/read these reminders of how we should view God’s Word. I know I need to make it my first priority and rekindling a true love/passion for it is the key. Thank you, Peggy!
